This was Kath's favourite project from the Winter Retreat this year, and I'm pretty sure it was also a favourite of all the retreaters who were lucky enough to be on this class.

Did You Know?

In case you don't know, we hold a craft retreat twice a year in April and September - and a few of the things that set ours apart from other retreats is that:

  • YOU can choose whether you go for 1, 2 or 3 days, 
  • YOU can choose to take the accommodation package or organise your own.  
  • YOU also have a choice of classes to pick from. 
  • WE only ask for a £50 deposit when booking
  • YOU can pay as little or as much as you like, when you like, so long as the balance is paid 30 days before the retreat

Aberdeen might seem like a long way away for some of you, BUT we have a fantastic international airport here in Aberdeen with great links to most regional UK airports as well as regular flights to and from all over Europe and beyond.We also have great road and rail links North, South and West as well as ferry links to the islands.

In September this year we have a special guest tutor - the fabulously talented Ken Oliver as well as our resident tutors: Kath Stewart, Charlotte Mitchell and Debbi Glennie.

We've made a few tweaks to our retreats for September, based on feedback from attendees, so this is shaping up to be our best retreat ever.

This is also the perfect gift for all your crafty friends and relatives - how excited would they be to come along and craft for a day or three?
